Expectations

For term 1 of the 2021-22 school session, we are continuing with our relaxed approach to uniform. Pupils are encouraged to wear black bottoms and white tops or school uniform on days when they don't have PE. We would ask for your support in ensuring that pupils don't come to school wearing inappropriate clothing ie items which would not usually be part of the uniform such as crop tops, ripped jeans, football strips etc.

In order for us to continue to limit opportunities for the virus to spread, doors and windows will be kept open to ensure that rooms are properly ventilated. This means classrooms will be cooler and pupils should dress appropriately for the building conditions.

Pupils should come to school wearing kit on the days they have PE. To prepare for weather conditions, young people should plan ahead by checking the weather forecast and wearing suitably warm clothing as PE may still take place outdoors.

Our changing rooms and lockers will remain off limits however, young people may choose to bring addition items such as a change of socks/shoes to make themselves more comfortable should the weather conditions be unfavourable. 

What is the uniform?

The uniform consists of:

  • Black school trousers or skirt
  • A plain white school shirt with collar, sleeves and buttons to the neck
  • Kinross High School tie available from the school office at £5 for a junior tie (S1-S4) or £9 for a senior tie (S5-S6)
  • A black jumper or cardigan
  • Comfortable black footwear

In addition to the above, we encourage all pupils to wear a school blazer. Please note that blazers must be worn by all S6 prefects.

Please note, any order for ties/blazers for new S1 pupils cannot be processed until a ParentPay account is set up. Activation code letters will be sent to parents/carers during the summer holidays.

 

The provision of school blazers is organised by the Parent Council. Our blazers are made from washable polyester so they are comfortable, light and easy to wear. The cost of a blazer is £40 which will be added to your ParentPay when you complete the order form

The Parent Council would like to invite pupils who no longer require their blazer to donate them back to the school so it can be put to good use by a new owner. Anyone wishing to donate their blazer should hand it in to the school office.

PE Kit

Pupils should come to school dressed in PE kit on days they have PE.

Items of Kinross High School's PE kit are available from www.SchoolWearMadeEasy.com 

Please note, plain versions of the PE kit (i.e. without badge) are acceptable and are available widely from other stockists.

In addition to the white or purple shorts, there is now an option for boys to wear plain black shorts and girls to wear three quarter-length black leggings.

Comfortable sports trainers are also required.
